The Ultimate Gift Guide for the Crazy Cat Lover in Your Life

If you know a crazy cat lover, chances are you’ve visited them and been amazed at just how many cat things one human being can own. We would know; our home has two crazy cat lovers in it, and the dog’s pretty nuts about her too. So how do you show your love and appreciation for the cat lover in your life? Waldo’s Friends gives you the purr-fect selection of presents to choose from. But first…   

What is a crazy cat lover?

A crazy cat lover is loosely defined as a person who is passionate about, well, cats. They may have grown up surrounded by cats, belong to a cat-loving household, are engaged in rescuing cats, and are 100% obsessed with the adorable four-legged creatures (hence, the adjective “crazy”). Being a crazy cat lover is an attitude and a lifestyle. Many people have embraced it as evidenced by the growing cat lover culture around the world. 

What should you consider when buying a gift for a crazy cat lover?

Fun fact: Ailurophile is an actual term for a person who loves cats! When selecting a gift for the ailurophile in your life, you must make sure that the item:

  1. Expresses their love for cats
  2. Highlights their obsession in a witty or humorous way 
  3. Has some cute cat graphics or puns to remind them of the true royalty in their life

What kind of gifts can I give a crazy cat lover?

Browse through 20 cat-themed items from categories such as: fashion, accessories, kitchen, home, and entertainment. Read up on each product, find out why a crazy cat person would like it, and decide if it’s something your receiver would personally appreciate.
